The rigorous development programme of Jaguar’s forthcoming F-TYPE sports car today stepped up a gear as the model made its global public debut at Goodwood’s Festival of Speed.

Jaguar F-Type Goodwood

Driven up the challenging hill by Jaguar’s Head of Vehicle Integrity, Mike Cross, the all-aluminium F-TYPE – a Supercharged V6 example ­– ran with its hood down for the first time in public view.

Said Mike: “The F-TYPE will deliver a driver-focused sports car experience, and camouflaged prototypes like this one are currently being tested all over the world. The development programme is right on schedule, and coming here today to showcase just a little of the dynamic precision, noise, speed and excitement that the production F-TYPE will exhibit is very satisfying. The reaction of the crowd has been fantastic – I’d like to keep running it up the hill all day!”

Thanks to special dispensation from the Goodwood organisers, one of the F-TYPE’s runs saw it blast up the hill immediately after C-type, D-type and E-type models, giving spectators a unique opportunity to view both Jaguar’s historic sporting bloodline, and its future one, at high speed.

Said Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars: “When we announced the F-TYPE’s development at New York in April of this year, we were delighted with the positive reaction from the press and public alike. The F-TYPE will be a true sports car, so to be able to give the fans here at Goodwood a first-hand flavour of the sight and sound of Jaguar’s exciting future is a great privilege.”
